How to braid for complete beginners
A 3 strand braid is a great braid to know, as it’s so quick to do, so it’s perfect for the late mornings or when you just need to get your hair tied away. There are only 2 steps to this braid after you have parted the hair, so it’s not that complicated to do.
You can also split the hair into 2 equal sections down the back of the head before braiding, so you can do some braided pigtails. It’s also a great hairstyle to protect your hair at night and as a bonus when you undo your braid in the morning, you will have some nice heatless waves!
